Title: Caustic stress corrosion tests for the LLTR

Abstract

A series of tests have been performed in order to determine the effects of the caustic resulting from the Na/H/sub 2/O reaction on the materials used in the LLTR-MSG series of testing. Stainless steel, 2 /sup 1///sub 4/ Cr--1 Mo and carbon steel have been evaluated. Stress corrosion cracking susceptibility and general corrosion are reported. Over the range of temperature, caustic concentration and heating rate tested the stainless steel stressed to 90% of yield or above suffered cracking. Whereas, the 2-/sup 1///sub 4/ Cr--1 Mo and carbon steel were not cracked.
